tie them up in a pillow case and put them on at 30

i wash lelli kellys in one of those net laundry bags, at 40 degrees, with the insoles removed, and never lost a bead yet

I don't know what will happen but I'd say let them dry out well, brush them off and if they need washing, 30.

I'd be terrified about the LKs though...

with any luck the trainers will be clean and the lelly kellys will have lost all beads/sequinny bits and be a nice pair of shoes.

40 degrees
Plenty of powder
Delicates cycle
Inside a pillow case per pair

You will lose some beads/sequins from the Lelli Kellys but it probably won't be noticable.
Washed dds lots of times and they are still finesmile

I put dds lelli kellys inside pillowcase and washed with old towels
On quick wash
Not one bead unplaced
Shiny shoes again!

Yes, remove insoles too, they are leather I believe.

oh I don't mind about the lellis bizarrely

it is the trainers I'm more worried about

it is really hard to get dd1 shoes that fit over her splints so even tho the trainers were £11 and the Lellis £!!!!, I'm a bit concerned about danJARMouse's story
